I seem to have gained a permanent hand attachment this morning. Many of you taking a close and scientific look at this hand attachment would probably call it less of a "hand attachment" and more of a "feline creature customarily called a cat," but the point is, I can't seem to get it off my wrist and hands. Possibly because I spent less time than usual at home this weekend and now apparently must make up for my failures by donating the use of my wrist into a heating pad.
But anyway. I have pretty much zilch interest in the VMA awards, so, you know, no particular opinion on the Kanye West whatever one way or another, and I was continuing to ignore them completely until I heard that Lady Gaga showed up to the awards with Kermit the Frog as her date.
This is awesome. This is so awesome that I immediately started to think, out loud, on Twitter, which Muppet I should bring to a major awards show. Besides proving that I should stop thinking out loud, on Twitter or anywhere, this started up a minor Twitter furry with various people making Muppet suggestions. The problem is, you see, that if I bring Animal he would doubtless eat many of the awards, causing people to hate me; if I bring Gonzo he would doubtless bring along his entire chicken harem, which would a) be distracting and b) take up too many seats; if I bring Fozzie I would be subjecting myself to an evening of terrible jokes and sudden sprays of water.
So, looks like so far the real contenders are Robin (Kermit's little nephew, just cause I like him); Beaker (because lord knows the poor Muppet desperately needs a night out from exploding things); and Lew Zealand (because if an awards show needs anything, it's a Muppet willing to throw fish at appropriate moments.) Hmm. This is a very, very tricky choice. Maybe I need to create my own Muppet Whatnot
